Toomuchloveliness: Makaron at Majeka House

Tasting the Spring Menu at Makaron

I am a long standing fan of both Majeka House and Makaron their incredible restaurant. Majeka House is my number one recommendation for a splurge romantic weekend away. Friends have visited for anniversaries and babymoons and have always been wow’ed! I always suggest going early to fit in a splash in their hot tub and…

Toomuchloveliness: La Tete

La Tete Winter Special

We snuck in a midweek date night at La Tete recently and it was such a lovely evening! What made it even better was the great winter special which really makes these midweek date nights possible! To keep this post super honest I want to let you know that this is our second visit to…

Toomuchloveliness: Majeka House

Majeka House: Luxury Sleepovers in Stellenbosch

Majeka House is my favourite hotel in Stellenbosch. You would think with them being in the winelands they’d be on a lavish wine farm with rolling grounds. Majeka House is actually tucked away in the sleepy suburbs of Stellenbosch. The grounds are beautiful with giant cactus and bright blue furniture! I love the social areas…

Toomuchloveliness: Makaron Stellenbosch

Small Plates with Makaron in Stellenbosch

A very long time ago I joined Makaron in Stellenbosch for dinner and we enjoyed a fine dining meal in the kitchen at the chef’s table with amazing food and incredible wine pairings. To date this meal stands out as one of the best I have ever had in Stellenbosch. Fast forward quite some time…

Toomuchloveliness: Weekend in Stellenbosch

Highlights of our recent weekend in Stellenbosch

This winter season we spent a weekend away in both Franschhoek and Stellenbosch. I had such fun putting together a recommended weekend in Franschhoek that I wanted to try the same for Stellenbosch! Here are my highlights and recommendations for a fantastic weekend in Stellenbosch! We’re covering what to eat, where to stay and most…

Dinner with La Belle in Camps Bay

We recently visited La Belle in Camps Bay to try their new menu. Like any good Capetonian local I am a little cautious when it comes to Camps Bay. During the summer season Camps Bay is packed with tourists drinking expensive cocktails and smashing seafood platters. However, winter is a great time to head to the…

Botriver Rainbow Spring Weekend

Over at Toomuchloveliness, we are huge fans of Botriver. I think it is the coolest kick-ass town just about ever. We first discovered Botriver on our trip up to their first every Botriviera Spring Weekend. We booked a little self catering spot at Uitwaaien, signed up for the fancy Friday dinner and had a glorious…

Toomuchloveliness: La Petite Ferme in Franschhoek

First Thursday’s with La Petite Ferme in Franschhoek

Like any good Cape Townian, I know First Thursdays very well. It’s a busy Thursday night in town with art galleries, pumping restaurants and great wine. Franschhoek has cottoned on to this and has started their own Food and Wine Experience at La Petite Ferme in Franschhoek on the First Thursday of every month through winter.…

Terroir, top Stellenbosch restaurant

Terroir: Top Stellenbosch Restaurant

Terroir is a top Stellenbosch restaurant and a darling of the South African culinary scene. I have been visiting over the years and always appreciate the fresh, seasonal and authentic dishes being served. My godmother was visiting from the UK and my mom said: “book the restaurants and we’ll pay”. This is a unicorn statement…

Eating Everything at Hartenberg

Eating Everything at Hartenberg

Our first trip out to the winelands for 2017 was Hartenberg Wine Estate and they have set a fantastic tone for the year of adventuring to come! Hartenberg is known for their picnics, their shiraz and their beautiful gardens. I have been to a picnic at Hartenberg before and really enjoyed the experience. This time…
